Oprah Winfrey Allegedly Cut Ties With Meghan Markle After Realizing Duchess Lied To Her
Oprah Winfrey and Meghan Markle have allegedly ended their friendship.
In its Nov. 8 issue, Woman’s Day claimed that Winfrey realized soon after she interviewed Prince Harry and Markle that the couple wasn’t being entirely honest about their accounts.
Earlier this year, Markle claimed that Kate Middleton made her cry. She and Prince Harry also accused the royal family of not listening to their complaints and mental health struggles. Markle also alleged that she thought of committing suicide because of how the British press targeted her.
Now, a source claimed that Winfrey couldn’t be more disappointed with Prince Harry and Markle. And the long-time host is even more upset with the couple because they tarnished her reputation.
“As soon as those headlines started coming out, and Oprah learned that they’d either exaggerate or downright lied to her, she was furious. This put a severe dent on Oprah’s reputation as one of America’s most skilled interviewers and even now, eight months later, it hasn’t quite recovered,” the source said.
The insider also claimed that Prince Harry and Markle’s former supporters have started to realize that the couple doesn’t practice what they are preaching. As such, they have started to turn on the Sussexes.
Fans of Winfrey couldn’t be more thrilled that she finally realized that Prince Harry and Markle shouldn’t be her friends. And she has started to distance herself from the couple.
According to the source, Winfrey’s revelation during a recent interview that she only has a handful of friends was a telling sign that she didn’t consider the Sussexes as her pals.
“That was a rather pointed comment to make because, until that point, everyone in Oprah’s circle assumed she was extremely close with Meghan. But it seems that’s changed,” the source said.
However, one should take the tabloid’s claims with a grain of salt because there is no indication that Winfrey cut ties with Prince Harry and Markle.
Even before the interview, Markle was already friends with Winfrey. In fact, the talk show host was invited to Prince Harry and Markle’s royal wedding years ago.
At the time, there were also reports that Winfrey developed a close friendship with Markle’s mom, Doria Ragland.
Following the interview in March, some people questioned the accuracy of Prince Harry and Markle’s accounts, but Winfrey never did. So, there’s no proof that she’s suddenly doubting the couple after all this time.
